Shaheen targets Test cricket to stand among the greats

Published June 17, 2020

Pakistan’s pace sensation Shaheen Shah Afridi has vowed to follow footsteps of legendary two Ws – Wasim Akram and Waqar Younis – as he is eager to prove himself in Test cricket.

"I have been focusing more on doing well in Test cricket because then only you are regarded as a fine bowler... like Waqar bhai and Wasim bhai. They picked up so many wickets in the Tests. I am also aiming at doing the same and keep on performing for my team," the 20-year-old told reports via teleconference.

Shaheen is part of the 29-member squad who will depart for England next month. The Men in Green has a good track record in those conditions which especially favor seam bowling.

"We are very hopeful regarding this series. We drew the series in 2016 and then put up great performances in the Champions Trophy,” said Shaheen. “Our track record in England is good and we remain hopeful [of a positive result].”

Pakistan is scheduled to take on England in three Tests same number of Twenty20 Internationals (T20Is), with the matches likely to take place between August 5 and September 1 in Manchester and Southampton.

The left-arm pacer also spoke about the team’s plan of action, bearing in mind the new rules and regulations.

"Before us, West Indies will be taking on England and we will also keep a close eye on the series as to how they are working with the new rules. We have accepted all the protocols (put forward by the ICC) and will try to devise plans keeping them in mind," he added.
